This is not quite the same as GeoDigital’s, Anna Maria Kotlowska’s LiDAR as Art contest, but it’s the same basic concept – great minds think alike! In this case it’s New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art that is hosting a by invitation only 3-D scanning and printing hackathon. Thanks to Bill Gutelius from Active Imaging Systems for the heads up on this fun sounding event.
The part that is confusing is that the 2 day event is being promoted as including scanning, but when you read the press release they say that cameras will be used to capture the images – confusing. I will try to find out more about the details.
